Start Your Own Blog NOW !


Do you want to start your own blog? This article will tell you how to get started.

If you do not know what a blog is here is a direct description from the Blogger website:

"A blog gives you your own voice on the web. It's a place to collect and share things that you find interesting - whether it's your political commentary, a personal diary, or links to web sites you want to remember.


Lots of people use a blog just to write down their own thoughts, while others have large audiences worldwide. Professional and amateur journalists use blogs to publish breaking news, while personal journalists reveal their inner thoughts.

The blogging experience is about not only putting your thoughts on the web, but hearing back from and connecting with other like-minded folks through the �comment" function.

Publishing a blog allows you to instantly create new content-rich web pages. These new pages can be linked to from the home page of your current website and/or be promoted separately. By creating additional content-rich website pages and promoting them from your home page or through other means, you'll be accomplishing two important things:

You will provide more value for your website visitors. This increases the time people spend on your blog ultimately trust you more. On the Internet, trust means more profits!

Search engines LOVE fresh content created through blogs. By publishing your own blog and adding fresh content to it on a regular basis, you'll attract the attention of the major search engines who will list your website in their directories for FREE. That's right! As soon as you have pages of your blog in the search engines, you'll start attracting free qualified traffic to your site without paying a dime for it.
